Employee Giving Program Public Rules

Per KCC 3.36 the Employee Giving Program may adopt rules for the program, including but not limited to, eligibility requirements for nonprofit participation. In order to be transparent, gain feedback from a variety of sources, and involve as many stakeholders as possible, the EGP Committee chose in 2012 to utilize the King County Public Rule Making Process which requires public notification and an opportunity for public feedback.
